How To Choose the Right Palmdale Tree Service

Factors like services and licensing are important considerations when choosing a tree removal company. We describe several key factors below.

Vet the Company's Qualifications

Your tree service provider should hold insurance to protect both workers and customers. These policies can include workers' compensation, general liability, or professional liability insurance. Make sure that the policy mentions tree work coverage specifically; otherwise, you may be liable for damage or injury that occurs on your property.

There are no mandatory national certification for tree removal. However, a company may have a certified arborist on staff to conduct inspections. Arborists learn proper care, maintenance, and preservation techniques to protect tree health. These specialists have earned voluntary certifications through the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA). Although having a certified arborist is not a requirement, it's an added benefit.

Get Quotes From Multiple Companies

We recommend requesting quotes from multiple companies to find the best deals. Compare each aspect of your quote, like included services, service fees, and timelines.

Confirm the Company Performs Residential Tree Services

A residential tree removal company will have fewer restrictions than a commercial one. Commercial tree companies work on large commercial properties and are required to follow certain local ordinances. For this reason, we recommend using a company that specializes in residential tree services.

Request a Tree Risk Assessment

A tree risk assessment (TRA) involves visually inspecting a tree and its branches to determine its likelihood of breaking. This is called tree failure. Evaluating tree failure helps service companies decide how to minimize the danger to their workers and your property.

TRAs are typically performed by certified arborists. Some companies charge an additional assessment fee, while others include it free with service. Request a TRA before completing any real work.

Ask About Stump Removal

Tree service companies can remove stumps from your yard with special equipment or by hand. This is important because neglected stumps will decompose over time and can attract pests or disease. Ask your provider whether stump removal is included with its service. Costs range from $86 to $627, with the typical Palmdale homeowner paying approximately $399.

How Much Does It Cost To Remove A Tree?

The cost of tree removal services ranges from $389-$1,710, with an average cost of $798. Things like tree size and type, tree health, and project size will influence the final price. Emergency tree removal costs around $2,052, and you'll incur additional fees if a tree has a higher failure risk or requires additional equipment, safety precautions, or labor. Companies may charge per acre instead of per tree if you're having multiple trees removed.
